According to a new report from Hollywood gossip site TMZ.com, the reason behind Georges St. Pierre’s desire to step away from the Octagon is due to an unplanned pregnancy and the health of his father.
“I’m going crazy. I have issues, man. I need to relax. I need to get out for a while. I don’t know what I’m going to do.” St. Pierre said during the UFC 167 press conference.
In the TMZ report, a source close to the situation is cited as saying that the welterweight champion does not want to have a baby with the woman but she insists on having it. His father is also dying.
No official statement on the matter has been released from the St. Pierre camp so stay tuned as more details on this come to the forefront.
